# Converting A Numeric Cell To A Letter Grade

Feb 14, 2009

I, too, am trying to use excel to the fullest. My first issue is, I would like to convert the numberic grade in one cell to a letter grade in another cell. I am not really good with all the vocabulary, but would love to learn it, and can copy a formula pretty well!!!! Not so good with functions and macros but would love to learn. All help appreciated.

Mar 30, 2008

I have a range of cells C11:C29,G12:G18,G20:G23,G25:G26,G28:G29,C33:C42,G33:G42,C46:C47,G46:G47,C51:C54,G51:G59,C58:C59 that contains letter grades (egs. A+,C- etc). I need the code for a macro that checks each cell from this range and if the value of the cell is A+ then the cell's value changes to 100, if the cell's value is A then change the cell's value to 98, if cell's value is B+ then change to 88 ...and so on...you get the idea (i will complete the rest of conditions but i just need the basic code).

Aug 11, 2007

creating a function to turn a percent (0-100) into a letter grade, I am creating a gradebook spreadsheet.

I think VLOOKUP is the way to go here, but I do not understand vlookup at all no matter how many times I try to look at demos or read how-tos.

I created two columns, one with what the grade entails (93-100 , 90-93 and so on) and the next column has A, A-, etc. But I can't get vlookup to work, any suggestions? I am pretty noob when it comes to excel.

## Assign Consistent Letter Value To Grade Percentage

Oct 9, 2008

Newbie here. I have a very frustrating problem. I am using excel for my gradebook at school. I've tried several different ways to assign a letter grade to an number average. It works fine each different way I do it, VLOOKUP, IF, etc. But, I have about 5 grades out of 100 which give the wrong letter grade. For instance, my scale says that a grade of 85 should be lowest limit of a "B", but I get a "C" returned in the cell instead. Like I said, it only happens on a few grades. The biggest majority work fine. I can't figure out why. Any ideas? Attached is one of the "problems" with a student's grades. Note the Final Avg with a grade of "C", it should be "B".

## Excel 2010 :: Letter Grade Calculator

Dec 29, 2013

I created an Excel 2010 macro enabled workbook (.xlsm) which calculates the letter grades of test scores between 1 and 100.

To use the workbook:

1. Put the scores in one column of the open worksheet.

2. Select the first score with the mouse (i.e. make this the "active cell").

3.Click on the "Calculate Grades" button on the sheet.

Public Function LGrade(ByVal score As Variant) As String
'Returns the letter grade based on a test score.
On Error GoTo ErrHandler

Select Case score
Case Is > 100: LGrade = "A+"
Case 95 To 100: LGrade = "A"
Case 90 To 94: LGrade = "A-"
Case 87 To 89: LGrade = "B+"

[code].....

## IF THEN Statements: Assign A Letter Grade To A Number

May 9, 2006

I have figured out how to assign a letter grade to a number, but am having trouble assigning it the other way, a number to a letter grade. For instance: If a student gets an A, I want the column next to it to indicate that the A represents a 4; a B represents a 3; a C represents a 2; D a 1; and F a 0. This will allow an easy grade point average calculation.

A 4 History
C 2 Math
A 4 English
B 3 Physical Ed
D 1 Science

GPA 2.80

## Excel 2007 :: Highest Letter Grade In Range

Nov 28, 2012

Listed below are the grades for a student. Some columns have blanks. I have to find the highest grade (A being the highest) in the range.

I'm going up with the opposite (F) with this formula:
=CHAR(MAX(INDEX(CODE(A22:M22&CHAR(1)),0)))

How do I get A?

I'm using Excel 2007

## Formula That Would Assign A Letter Grade (in Row W) To The Average In Row V, Based On The School's Scale

Oct 3, 2006

Need to write a formula that would assign a letter grade (in row W) to the average in row V, based on the school's scale. So, row V contains my averages (in % form) and I want row W to have the letter equivalents.

93+=A
85-92=B
75-84=C
67-74=D
<66=F

## Assigning Numeric Value To A Letter

Mar 18, 2013

I have been trying to resolve my latest issue using various IF and Lookup formulas but havent been able to find the answer.

I have designed a spreadsheet that logs staff members hours. Staff input their hours worked in cells C12:BL12 and BM12 uses a simple sum formula to add them all up =sum(C12:BM12).

What i would like to do is input "S" for sick, "H" for holiday, "BH" for bank holiday etc and each one of these letters represent a number of hours adding in to my sum formula in BM12.

For example: Below shows a working week with the total hours worked per day underneath If H=8 and S=7.4, the total would read 39.4

MTWTF
8S8HH

Is this possible?

Jul 10, 2013

I am compiling a master spreadsheet to analyse progress of students. I have their potential grades in one column and their latest progress grade in another.

I would like an automatic look up of the potential to the progress grade so that if their current grade is BELOW their potential that gets highlighted one colour, if it is above, another colour.

One issue is that the grades are all letters (S, A, B, C, etc.) and that some potential grades are 'dual' (i.e. A/B, S/A) which complicates the issue somewhat.

Jun 13, 2006

my Excel teacher doesn't even know how to do this! The chapter is Working with Multiple Worksheets and Workbooks, and we went into linking workbooks, linking worksheets, using the VLOOKUP function, and saving workbooks as templates. This is Case Problem 2 and i'll attaching the file.

It says:

1. On the Grading Criteria worksheet, enter the text "Exam Average" in cell A1
and the text "Grade" in cell B1.

2. In the range A2:B6, create a lookup table for the range of grades specified by Professor Templeton. (Hint: Each letter grade should be matched up with the lowest score possible for that grade.)

0 to 49 = F
50 to 59 = D
60 to 74 = C
75 to 89 = B
90 to 100 = A

3. Insert a formula in Column E of each worksheet to calculate the overall score of each student based on the grade table you entered in the Grading Criteria worksheet.

## Formula To Converting First Letter To CAPS?

## Converting A String To A Numeric Date

Jul 13, 2009

I need to be able to locate a date in a spreadsheet bassed uppon a user input date. I am looking for the week that contains the user's date. However it seems even if I initialize the value as Date, it still reads the user's input as a string.

Is there an easy way make sure the system automaticaly recognizes the user's input as a date, or is there a way to quicly convert the string to a date?

## Converting Hh:mm:ss To Simple Numeric Format?

Oct 9, 2011

I need to convert data in HH:MM:SS format to normal numbers

for example if I have a time ( 10 hours 30 mins 30 sec )

10:30:30 then it should reflect as 10.3

I basically am not looking to convert the data to complicated hours format like say 10.9 and all as it complicates the other calculation.

## Converting Numeric Data To Proper Dates

Jan 4, 2014

I need to convert numeric data to proper dates. Example: a cell currently reads 100875 but I need it to display 10/08/1975.

I've already found a VBA script that properly formats new data as you enter it (keying 1298 results in 1/2/1998), and I'm familiar with using =DATE(left,mid,right) to coerce Excel into spitting out a date in a certain format.

The difficulty I'm having is that I need to make existing data display correctly, without adding another column to accommodate reinterpretation of said existing data through a formula. Essentially I'm looking to avoid having to re-key several thousand date entries.

## Stop Excel Converting Numeric Values To Dates

Jul 9, 2012

I have looked at some threads related to this issue but don't quite fit what I am on about. I access some data online that appears in a grid format which I copy and paste to Excel. I don't have access to the source data/database. I select and set some query variables and run the query and the result appears in the grid. I copy and paste to Excel that is it. When paste to Excel 2010 I have the choice between "Keep source formatting" and "Match destination formatting". OK, I always choose the 2nd option i.e. "Match destination formatting". That is it. It appears to be a simpler format. Where does the problem come in? Can you help me stop Excel from involuntarily converting numerics to dates when not asked?

The data itself can (at least the part that I'm interested in can) come in 2 different ways. 1) WPS or 2) W%P%S. In case you're interested these represent racing statistics where 1) WPS = Number of Wins, Places, Starts given as whole integer format and 2) W%P%S = Percentage of Wins, Percentage of Places and S is still the integer number of starts. Now, when I run the query and copy these statistics over to Excel, particularly in the form of the 1st type of data i.e. WPS they are in the form e.g. "2-6-12" which means 2 wins, 6 places from 12 starts. The stats literally come across in the form "W-P-S" where I fear the delimiter "-" is causing the date conversion consequences that I have outlined at the start. ALSO, as you could have imagined, I have tried importing the data in terms of the 2nd type of data namely "W%-P%-S", which, on the surface of things begins to solve the problem in terms of the initial paste of the data into Excel. That is true, and yes I have found that this has delimited the data correctly mainly. Although there are still occasional problems. When I import the data this way, I still want the data in the % form as well as the integer form. So I do a great deal of data massaging with what I have and yet in re-converting some of the data back to integer form I can still encounter the "convert to date" problem.

## Return Column Letter Based On The Letter In A Cell.

Dec 31, 2009

For the below formula is it possible to replace the B's (column location) with a cell Say Z146 which contains the letter B (or a number if thats easier and someone can tell me the numbers for each column).

When the formula is dragged into the next cell (down) it takes its column reference from Z147 and then my life becomes so much easier.

=IF(INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH(\$C145,'Overs-Unders'!\$A:\$A,0))"",INDEX('Overs-Unders'!B:B,MATCH(\$C145,'Overs-Unders'!\$A:\$A,0)),"")

## Extracting A Numeric A Specific Numeric String From A Description Cell

Oct 22, 2009

I am trying to do is extract the volume size of products in 'ml'
from 10k plus products from a description field cell.
this description field could also contain the weight of the product in grams
so I cannot just do a search for a numeric string ,
it has to be associated with the milli-litres statement .

is is possible to do a sort of ' *ml ' search and then select and copy to another cell ???

## Converting A Column Number Into A Column Letter

Mar 9, 2007

I have a variable, ColumnX. I want to use VBA to generate some formula referencing ColumnX. For example: I want to sum the values in A1 to A10. ColumnX has been set to "1" which is the number of column A.

Range("A11")= "=sum("A1:" & ColumnX & "10)"

Obviously the above code doesn't work because I'm putting a number where VBA expects a letter. How can I rewrite my code so that A11 will entered with formula that sums A1 to A10?

## Convert Lower Letter To Capital Letter Automatically

When I type a single lower case letter into a cell, what formula or conditional formatting should I use to always convert it to a capital letter automatically?

## Change Letter Case Of Cells First Letter Only?

Mar 7, 2014

I need to change a few hundred cells (one column) where the first letter may be a capital letter to a lowercase letter.

So:
GetAwardfromBid to getAwardFromBid
or
SmallLertter to smallLetter

## Convert Numeric And Scientific Symbol To Numeric Only

Jun 4, 2014

I have a column of several thousand entries listed as numeric with a scientific symbol eg.

1.4mSv
19.53mSv/1mSv (some have a mix and or alpha/numeric range)

I want to convert them to the numeric value only. I'm extracting to a chart which is not recognising the alpha and throwing the data out. I tried find and replace, trying various options within the 'replace format' tab with no joy.

## Finding A Non Numeric (or Numeric) Character In A Field

Sep 1, 2008

I have a few thousand products codes (i.e ABCD123BLA08 or SHU267BLA) They are non standardised in length or structure. I wish to pull out everything upto the end of the third numeric digit.( ie ABCD123 and SHU267) I cannot use left as they are all different lengths. Ideally i would serach for a non numeric char after the number then use left up to that point. Search can't do this, FIND can't do this.

Summary
ABCD123BLA08 would be ABCD123
SHU246BLU would be SHU246
I147ORT08-12 would be I147

## VBA Change Cell Value To Specific Letter Based On Value Of Different Cell In Different Worksheet

Jun 6, 2014

I've done the following:

Sub BrownBH()
If Range("Brown!B4:B31") = X Then
Range("C4").Value = [#A]
Else
Range("C4").Value = NT
End If
End Sub

However, this doesn't even work.

When somebody enters an X in a specific cell on one worksheet, it's supposed to change the value to A of a specific cell in a different worksheet. Sounds simple enough...but...

## Pulling A Letter From A Cell And Filling Another Cell With Info

Nov 27, 2005

Here is what I am trying to do with no luck so far.

If I type RS23U1R109000 in a cell A1, I want B1 to read the 5th letter or
number and fill B1 with E86.

Example
A1= RS23U1R109000 B1=E86
A1= RS23V1R109000 B1=E87
A1= RS23R1R109000 B1=E84

As you can see in my example, the 5th letter could be U,V,R or whatever, but
I need cell B1 to read that letter and populate B1 with E86, E87, E84 or
whatever.

## Macro To Put Value In Cell If Word Or Letter Appears In Another Cell?

Mar 7, 2011

I have to loop through a range in A, and if the letter "C" or the number "9" appears in the cell anywhere (it won't be a whole cell value) then I need column B to show "C".

I know how to do a whole value loop, but I'm stumped on a 'find X anywhere' search.

## If Statement Numeric Or Alpha Numeric

Jan 12, 2010

I have a column that has cells with values as

19352510
C084111X AA
24253081
A001290U AA
19599291
48413321

I want to write an If Statement is a column next to each entry that denotes two options either Broker or Agent. Where the code is say 19352510 then Broker and where it is say C084111X AA then Agent.

Broker codes will never contain a letter. The Agent code will always start and finish with a letter.

## Lookup First Letter In Cell...

Jan 19, 2009

Is there a way to lookup the first letter of a word in the cell. I am trying to keep my sheet as small as possible for emailing. It would help to narrow down the possible lookup combinations. For example I only need to know if it starts with T, P, or V. I don't need to know the rest of the word. eg TMO, TAEFA, P1284, VTL3D etc.
